In our Glee “Duets” review, we noted that Sam & Quinn’s performance wasn’t our favorite. (They didn’t deserve those breadsticks!) But what about you? We’re going to remind of you each duet performed last night (whether in the competition, or not) and let you vote for your favorite so we can all see what the fans think. First up is our winning pair.
